mi chiamo lorenzo e da poco ho conosciuto questo magnifico gioco che mi ha permesso non solo di divertirmi in modo intelligente ma anche di conoscere nuova gente e di approfondire le mie amicizie con la gente che gi� conoscevo
ho appena creato il mio account su questo server e non ho molto tempo per scrivere adesso quindi per il momento chiunque trover� questa pagina se la dovr� sorbire in italiano senza (sigh!!!) alcuna traduzione, ne inglese, ne aramaico, ne niente! ma spero che nei prossimi giorni possiate trovare qualche cosa di pi�!
ah... un'ultima cosa: questa pagina sar� una specie di blog (si dice cos� non � vero?) sulle mie avventure goistiche e non solo
I finally decided to add some info about me in english.
I am Lorenzo and I`m Italian. I live in Manchester, and i study physics, even though without much success... I'm still 3rd year BSC and already 23!!!
This page will be my go-blog: I will write here the most important news related to my go-life and my progress in this great game. I`ve never played in a tournament therefore I haven't got any official rank, so if I say I am 15k i mean that I have that rank on KGS... Actually I often play there with my Italian sensei Stefano (I could never thank you enough!).
just to let you know, here are some links:
